Notes From The Sixers’ 86-79 Win Over Cleveland

The Philadelphia 76ers won their second straight game on Sunday night, taking down the Cleveland Cavaliers 86-79 at the Wells Fargo Center. The win improves the Sixers to 6-4 on the season.

  • Strong defensive effort by the Sixers tonight. Kyrie Irving came into the game as one of the league leaders in scoring, and the Sixer defense forced him into one of his worst games of the year. Irving scored just nine points, connecting on just four his 14 shots. He also took just one trip to the free throw line, and didn’t hit a three point shot.
  • Rebounding was once again a bit of an issue for this team though. The Cavs hauled in seven more rebounds than the Sixers, and had 18 offensive rebounds. Guys like Spencer Hawes and LaVoy Allen have got to get tougher to prevent teams from picking up as many second chance opportunities in the future.
  • Evan Turner played one of his better games of the season, scoring 19 points, dishing out nine assists, and collecting six rebounds. Turner hit a couple of big shots late in the game that helped the Sixers fend off the Cavs’ comeback attempt. ET can be a nice player when he’s on top of his game and playing with confidence.
  • Nick Young played very well off of the bench tonight, scoring 13 points and hitting five of his six shots. Young is an up and down player. On a good night, he can shoot you back into a game. On a bad night, he’ll shoot you out. Tonight was one of his better efforts.
  • Spencer Hawes also made a nice contribution off of the bench, scoring 14 points and picking up nine rebounds. As mentioned before, he needs to do a better job at preventing opponents from gathering offensive rebounds, but he played pretty well tonight. I don’t like the fact that he thinks he’s a three-point shooter, but he did hit a big three late in the game tonight.
  • Jrue Holiday played well again, scoring 14 points with nine assists. He also committed just two turnovers. on Facebook

  1. the real reason bynum isnt playing is cause we havent given him his money…we give him the gold, maybe he’ll stop bowling and show up for work…

    • I’m glad you’re not our general manager.
      Spencer Hawes us playing very well and should probably be starting. If Bynum is able to get healthy, this team could be special.

  2. I’ll glad they allowed Evan to play above the foul line and not stuck in the corner especially when Royal Ivey is on the floor for Jrue
    I still don’t know why Jrue refuses to initiate contact and get some cheap fouls on opponent’s PF to help Thad Young out. I foul conscious and/or timid PF defended by Thad might help out their rebounding not to mention get ease free throw points.

  3. DeMar DeRozan & Andrea Bargnani tonight
    the raptors are a finese team that the Sixers match up well against
    1st raptor game DeRozan got no love from the ref — that won’t happen again so they must double him if he starts heating up
    Jrue, get to the foul line
